Hello and a warm welcome to July's edition of Polar's Tip of the Iceberg! We're excited to present you with an array of fresh design and development insights that will spark your creativity and elevate your skills to new heights. From innovative tools to cutting-edge techniques, our curated selection will keep you ahead of the game. Missed last month’s edition? Check it out here.

Some of our highlights for today are box-shadow, a time-saving solution that ensures seamless compatibility when converting box-shadows from design software to Webflow. Next, we'll explore LottieFiles for Webflow CMS, revealing how to effortlessly integrate captivating Lottie animations using custom code. Lastly, get ready to harness the incredible potential of GPT-3 Meta Descriptions, as we walk you through the process of generating SEO titles and descriptions directly from Webflow Designer.

So here are our top 5 for July:

#1: Convert Box-Shadows from Design to Webflow

If you've ever faced the frustration of shadows not translating accurately from your design files to Webflow, this tool is your ultimate solution. With box-shadow, you can import your shadow styles from Figma and effortlessly convert them into precisely matched CSS values for Webflow.

No more trial-and-error adjustments, box-shadow ensures a flawless translation of multiple shadows with just a simple one-click paste. This is a newfound level of consistency and efficiency where shadows are finally in perfect sync between design and development.

#2: Lottie Animation in CMS Dynamic Pages

Lottie files have the advantage of being vector-based, ensuring consistently high-quality animations without pixelation, unlike MP4s. Additionally, they often have smaller file sizes for smoother loading and playback.

While supporting lottie on regular static pages, Webflow doesn’t have the ability to use lottie files in CMS dynamic pages natively. Luckily for us, we have a quick guide to show you how it can be done with a tiny bit of custom code.

By uploading your Lottie JSON file to a hosting service (or Weblow’s assets library) and obtaining the direct link, you can easily bind it dynamically within the CMS. You also have the ability to control video speed, loop and reverse direction on loop settings.

This tool that serves as a ‘new tab’ page, compiles a vast array of articles, tutorials, and resources from over 400 reputable sources, including renowned websites and blogs. Stay in the loop with the latest trends and technologies that shape the web landscape.

Moreover, serves as a valuable platform for developers to showcase their own work and forge connections within the web development community.
